Water filter systems have become an office essential throughout Australia. Australians are leading the way with adoption of this technology for many reasons; safety, convenience, workplace productivity, environmental concerns and our willingness to invest in our health.
In this blog we will address the safety related issues of historical alternatives to under bench filtered water taps such as kettles, portable water boilers and bottled water coolers.
Responsible manufacturers of filtered water dispensers in Australia such as Billi and Zip offer models with boiling water safety buttons. This is not just an essential for education, child-care and public buildings.
Whilst there may be little chance that a worker will bring their child to work, adults may also make the same mistakes as children when they’re tired or not paying attention. Therefore, a neat under bench boiling, chilled and sparkling filtered water system with a safety over-ride option can avoid the potential safety risks of many traditional products.
Burns risks from accidental pulling of kettle power cords and tipping of kettles.
Burns risks from staff walking with the kettle in hand and being bumped.
Over-filling / overflowing kettles can be a burns hazard.
Kettles can be spilt, creating a burns risk with a larger volume of water than filling up a single cup with an under-bench water dispenser.
Free standing water chillers / water boilers
Free-standing coolers which also have boiling water taps at child-accessible heights can lead to a tragic incident if somebody brings their child to work.
